Many people on the ascension path are concerned that they don’t have a single passion or purpose that they could sink their teeth into. They may feel bored and want to do something creative. They look around sometimes and see others deeply immersed in professions or avocations and they wonder why they themselves can’t seem to find that singular passion. In fact when they look at their life they may never have had a single driving passion.
In my own life as I reflect, I really did not have any single passion other than wanting to express through whatever medium may have been available. I enjoyed art for many years, creating drawings, paintings and sculptures. But it wasn’t an everyday passion. I majored in art in college and I obtained a master of arts degree in graduate school. But quite honestly, I never really followed it as a profession or a career. Overall I followed whatever felt interesting in the moment, even at one time opening up an art supply and custom framing store with my husband. (now ex husband, who still runs the business). I worked at it for ten years, and it was quite successful, but even there I did not feel a driving passion for the work. I felt then a need to move on from that business and that husband. For quite a long time I thought I lacked something because I did not have that drive and dedication. I thought, maybe I am not taking myself seriously enough, maybe I just don’t believe in myself enough, and all kinds of other justifications for not following unwaveringly one creative path.
It took me quite a long time but I began to realize that there was absolutely nothing wrong with any of that. Many of us came into this lifetime with a passion to awaken. And, it really does not matter what we do or not do. We do not have to build careers or avocations if we do not feel that drive. Because, we are actually already doing our passion. Of course society for the most part does not recognize that we are doing that, so we may get criticism. We may be told we are lazy, or unambitious, or are spreading ourselves in too many directions. That we lack focus.
I had the credentials if I wanted to teach art on a university or college level. But I really did not, after all that education, want to pursue that path. I ended up taking odd jobs here and there that had really nothing to do with my creativity. But, regardless of the relationships I found myself in, or the jobs I worked at to earn money, I always found the time and resources to be creative if the desire was strong enough.
So if any of you ever feel that perhaps you are not finding that one thing that’s going to give you that joy, and that because you can’t find that one thing, there’s something wrong with you, there isn’t. You are just where you need to be. If you feel like developing a career or teaching what you have learned about ascension, or writing or anything of that nature then of course pursue it. But if you find yourself just wanting to relax in life, and just do whatever feels good in the moment, you have already found your sweet spot, you just don’t realize it.
So many of us on the leading edge of ascension are recognizing that we are fulfilling our passion. And that passion is to love ourselves unconditionally, to invite our spirit, our soul into our bodies and our lives, and to enjoy this life. We are here to release old stuck energies, to transform ourselves from the inside out, and to share that experience as much as we enjoy sharing it, with others of like mind.
If that’s not a passion then what is?
